Our friends over at FanthaTracks.com are covering MCM London Comic Con in detail and they published the first images of what Star Wars Resistance 3 3/4" action figures are going to look like in their packaging. We also get a good look at IG-88 and Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) from Hasbro's The Black Series Archive line for 2019.
We expect two new reveals on Sunday during Hasbro's panel, one for The Black Series 6" line and one for the 3 3/4" The Vintage Collection. We'll post the press images once we get them so stay tuned to J.B. for all the info, and make sure to follow our friends at FanthaTracks.com on social media!
Cnet.com introduced Hasbro's Star Wars: Resistance 3 3/4" action figure line yesterday, which was followed by an in-room presentation of the action figure line during a press only event during New York Comic Con 2018. The action figures on display included ten figures, six Star Wars figures which will be released single carded and four figures which will be released in two 2-packs. The single carded figures included Kazuda Xiono, Commander Pyre, Torra Doza, Synara San, Major Vonreg and a regular First Order Stormtrooper. The 2-packs will include Poe Dameron with BB-8 and Jarek Yeager with his droid.
The Star Wars: Resistance toy line was referred to by Hasbro as their "kiddie line" and that means less articulation (5POA). The figures are more colorful, brighter and the overall look is stylized to match the Star Wars: Resistance tv show, which is heavily influenced by anime. The toy line will come in its own packaging and will be available in Spring 2019. There were no vehicles announced, but the show is based around races, so we should see some vehicles in this toy line in the future.
You can listen to the audio of the announcement during the press event below.
Star Wars Resistance premieres this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel. We'll update this article with press photos and photos from the event in the near future, please stay tuned.
